The Imrie family will be talking to us about their family’s new venture into woodland creation at Hillhead farm, Torrance, Lanarkshire and how this has helped them to maximise their marginal land and safeguard the future of the family business. We’ll discuss the initial thought processes, the decision to plant trees, objectives, challenges and benefits etc. and how a ‘No, no trees’ became a ‘yes!’ We will also have a speaker from Scottish Forestry joining us to discuss funding and first steps to woodland creation. As this will be a farmer-led network please come along and bring your questions and ideas to help us guide future event topics.
